One thing ive noticed about 68 is that the ability to search for and remove cookies for a specific site has been removed (or hidden so well that it has fooled me) - which is quite annoying as I , and I bet many devs, use that feature a lot (you can do stuff via dev tools also but it was useful to have in settings)

RE: cookie removal

Yes, however there are alternatives. I use the Chrome Web Developer Toolbar [chrome.google.com]

Lots of other nice tools in there as well.

@robzilla - yes yes - it is hidden to the right with that tiny little arrow. Was even difficult to see once you pointed it out ! thanks.
No points to the chrome UX team though!


And yes , i use Chrome Dev Tools alot but im just accustomed to clearing an individual cookie for staging / dev sites using settings in chrome . Glad it is still in there!

The Chrome Web Dev toolbar lets you view individual cookies, then clear them as needed. Much more explicit than the tool inside the browser.

the settings in the browser let you do that aswell - you can drill right down into site> list individual cookies > examine the contents of each cookie (path , domain, content, created, expiry etc) - two ways of doing the same thing really. I guess because I first started clearing individual cookie via settings that I got used to it which is why i missed it. I use dev tools for pretty much everything else though so maybe i should change my habit anyway!

OK, thanks for for clarifying that. Guess I'm just used to using the Web Dev tool.

Just got another minor update, to 68.0.3440.84. Looks like the extra spacing between bookmarks was reverted.

Me as well: Version 68.0.3440.84 (Official Build) (64-bit)

Didn't notice it. Might have been overnight.
